B film crime drama. Director Edward L. Cahn ("She
Creature"/"Laughter in Hell"/"Gun Street") keeps it
brisk and exciting. It's based on a story by John
Rathmell & W. Scott Darling. The
screenplay is by Olive Cooper and W. Totman.
Dave Elliott (Donald Cook) risks his life to go
undercover to nab crooked gambling boss Lefty Tate (J.
Carrol Naish), who poses as a respectable
businessman. Thereby he avenges the murders of his FBI
seeing just to watch Naish do evil.
